 Italy

The biggest derby is the Rome derby between Lazio and AS Roma followed by the Genoa derby that is being played between Genoa and Sampdoria. The rivalry between AC Milan vs. Inter Milan is maybe a little less fierce but it's one of the most famous derbies in the world. Other city derbies are Juventus - Torino and Verona - Chievo.

Derbies:

Milan-Inter
Rivalry between fans is not that big anymore but it's a very famous derby.
Juventus-Torino
The club of the Agnelli family against the little brother supported by the city middle class.
Genoa-Sampdoria
A very strong rivalry between two clubs sharing the beautiful Luigi Ferraris stadium.
Verona-Chievo
A "new" derby. Verona are the traditional team of the city while Chievo is a suburb of Verona with less support.
Roma-Lazio
The derby of the capital is probably the strongest rivalry in Italy.


Rivalries:

Juventus-Milan, the two clubs with the most titles.
Juventus-Inter, the "derby d'Italia" is played between the only two clubs that never relegated.
Juventus-Roma, especially strong since the '80s.
Juventus-Fiorentina, the real derby for Fiorentina fans.

Strong rivalry though both clubs have leftist supporters.
Fiorentina-Empoli
Not a big rivalry as it's mostly based on geographical reasons (Empoli is just 20 kms from Florence).
Fiorentina-Siena-Livorno, "Derby of Toscane".
Perugia-Ternana, "Derby of Umbria". Both clubs have leftist fans but strong rivalry.

"Derby of Marche". Ancona bankrupted in 2004, they have leftist fans while Ascoli's are rightist.
